I have recently purchased my very first snake, EVER, and I have chosen a snow corn snake, and I must say HE'S THE MOST BEAUTIFUL I have ever seen. We have named him BOB as we wanted a name that no-one would forget, and so far, no-one has hahaha. At first I was very frightened about handling him thinking he was going to bite me at every opportunity, but he has never given me a reason to be scared of him, and I can feel a bond with him already (does that sound weird). I no longer feel scared of him and I am handling him now as often as I can... apart from when he's ready for feeding! I hope me and BOB have a long and happy relationship, and I can definitely say I would love to have another, but for now I'm happy.

    Our baby snow corn has escaped. Do you think my dogs would have ate it. Because I can't find it anywhere

    My guess is that it is probably in the house somplace under or behind something. These guys get out and they can find the best hideaways imaginable.  Good luck with the search.  WOW  not fun.

    Just remember that these sort of snakes are not very nice. If they had got out and need to go back to there tanks I also have a corn snack and she gets out almost all the time.

We actually had a southern corn snake named Billy Jack and two weeks ago he escaped from his tank:( I was sooo upset this guy was sooo friendly and easy going and was almost three feet long...he hasn't turned up so I went to my breeder or new snake and fell in love with this baby snow corn snake. She's a girl which is exciting and is kinda pink and has the best pink eyes. I can't bring her home til the 24th but I'm excited to bring this lil girl home

I have had smakes before, some being; An Eastern and western Hognose, Normal Corn, pygmy rattle, and my first was a simple garden snake. I currently have none due to recently moving and my mom forcing me to sell (give away in the case of the rattle, I do no;t know if they are legal to sell in my state.) all of mine. I would be very intrested in buying a Snow Corn Snake to breed if anyone has one and are looking to sell. I am experianced and handle them very well, it will get a good home.

I took my 4 yr old to the pet store and told him to pick anything he wanted. Instead of a fish he picked an albino corn snake and named him Mr Strawberry. He is so frienldy my 4 yr old holds him no problems :) and he feeds him and takes care of him. I'm glad we have him - very friendly snake

I've had my snow corn snake for about two months now. He's about twelve inches, and he's extremely tame. I named him Alexi (after the lead guitarist and vocalist in Children of Bodom), and I quickly fell in love with my snake. The only problem is that since I've had him, he has refused to eat and he takes no interest at all in any food we try to feed him.

    Even though they say snakes are color blind, my snow corn refuses to eat black mice. She also will not eat rat pups. Try a white mouse, if that fails try a brown mouse, if that fails try a rat pup.

    And if none of the above work then stick with pinkies and hothead them, in other words put them in a plastic container with boiling water in and leave for a couple of minutes. Throw them in and leave your snake for about an hour, if it hasn't eaten then it could be that the heat is too high or low. Or it's just a weak corn snake. A lot of young corn snakes die due to starvation. They lack the ability or knowledge to understand what food is or have trouble working out how to fit the food in its mouth. Mine did this for about 3 weeks before I nearly gave up and it finally ate. 3 times since now. Having 2 pinkies each time. Shedding time soon.

    My sisters snake did that....took it to an expert and they told her to cover the snake for awhile while food is in the cage...hope this helps

I just recently got a albino snow corn snake. I named her Roxy. I fell in love with her the first time I seen her. shes a creamy pink colour with ruby red eyes. I was sorta afraid to pick her up at first (not because I'm afraid; I've had a snake before) but because she's a baby & so tiny still. It'll be my first time feeding her tomarrow I'm kinda excited & nervous lol. She's such a gentle snake & all my friends love her. :) I hope someone who's interested in getting one see's this & realizes how beautiful they really are <3

I found my snow corn snake while visting a mate at night. I almost dismissed it as a stick, I passed it, then walked back and it made a break for it! I caught the little bugger and took it home. The wife and I both fell in love with it straight away (me a little more!). We own lizards (beardies) 5 of them, but never a snake. We've done lots of reading up on them but are still not 100% confident! Think it's a boy and he's never warm! He was 10" long so still young, but after 2 day's he ate 2 small pinkies so I know he is happy enough. Hasn't got his own viv yet but he's in a large rodent tank inside a LARGE viv (controlled heat & light & separate thermometer). Waiting for his viv to be built! Any advise would be greatly apprecated. thanks

    This may seem rude but i was just wondering when you posted this and where you found it. I know it sounds odd and probably rude. I just lost my snow corn snake earlier this month he's about the same length you discribed. I've been googling and looking on different sites trying to figure out where he might be. I really hope you don't think me rude I'm just desparate to find him. If you could reply even if I'm completely mistaken(which I probably am) that would be absolutely amazing. My email is Ryder_azazel@hotmail.com please and thank you.

    I can remember when my corn snake was a baby now she's huge! She can eat 2 big mice now! :D

    could be yours, snow corns are extremely rare to find in the wild. it most likely is a captive escaped.

I'm getting my first pet snake and it is a snow corn snake. He is about two months old and he is 16 inches long. I already decided a name for him, Royalty,and he is very sweet.
